This is the Wiki Project Page for CONS200. The Open Case Studies project at UBC brings together faculty and students from different disciplines to write, edit, and learn with case studies that are free and open--they are publicly available free of cost, and they are licensed to allow others to revise and reuse them. As part of CONS200, you have the opportunity to create valuable educational resources that can be used world-wide.You will create a wiki article to demonstrate (a) your ability to extract and summarize relevant information and (b) your capacity to rationalize and present logical arguments for further evolution or progress on some aspect of your case study.
You (and the other three members of your group) will create a Wiki page on a specific topic. All four members of the group will be able to include the link to that UBC-hosted Wiki page on your curriculum vitae. Here are some steps and resources to help you create your page and have it appear on the index for this portal (right side), so that it can be easily accessed by your peers and your instructor.
Click the CWL button on the top of the page and login from there.
We have made it easy for you to create your assignment page right from here. Just add the title of your project to the box below and click on the create page button (note that you will need to be logged in to the UBC Wiki in order for this to work). On the edit screen that loads, add your name to the edit screen and hit SAVE at the bottom of the page. You can delete this later when you are ready to start writing your article.
Once you have created your wiki page, add your team information the course project table.
Your new wiki page will be created with some suggested headings and sections.
The Wiki Paper should be between 2,500 and 3,500 words of text in length (exclusive of references, maps, photographs).
You should demonstrate (a) your ability to extract and summarize relevant facts and (b) your capacity to rationalize and present logical arguments for further evolution or progress on some aspect of environmental conservation.
This is only a suggested structure. It is very likely that you will need to modify this structure to fit your topic:
All wiki project pages are openly accessible on the Internet. If you would like to give permission for other people to use them (for example, by including them on the UBC Open Case Studies Site), the project template includes a green box that allows you to add your name(s) as author(s) of the resource and indicate if you'd like to share your work via a Creative Commons license . If you would like, add a name for who or what project created the resource, add that info after the names parameters. If left blank, it will default to Course:CONS200.
The following is all optional but if you’d like your name added to the page as author as well allowing other people to re-use it as a conservation resource, you can:
